Did not stay in the Hotel but had a great meal. The food was good, well cooked and presented and very reasonably priced. Also they have an excellent selection of malts to choose from. The barman was also very knowledgeable about the whiskies available.

The bar is comfy and sells real ale on draft. This was the only draft ale we found on the island and in good condition. We booked for the restaurant (to be recommended as it was full). Great range of seafood and local meats. All well presented, good portions and excellent taste. Service great.

Recommended to me by a colleague, I was delighted with my stay at the Scalloway. Despite a slightly drab looking bar/reception area (I understand that these are just about to be remodelled), my room was fresh and comfortable, with a powerful shower and quality bedding. The whole experience was topped off by a good range of quality food at dinner/breakfast....

I recently spent 2 nights (Saturday and Sunday evenings) at the Scalloway Hotel. My room and en-suite shower room were attractively decorated and well-equipped; the bed was very comfortable. I chose to have both of my evening meals in the hotel's restaurant; the food and service were excellent. I can certainly understand why the local couple who recommended the Scalloway...

Arriving at 8.30 on a dark Friday morning, we didn't expect our rooms to be ready. We were warmly welcomed, allowed to freshen up and then treated to an amazing full Scottish breakfast by Peter, the very hands on owner. By the end of breakfast, our rooms were ready and so began a weekend of true old school hospitality. The...

Stayed here for two nights with my 13 year old son , on our first trip to Shetland. It's a great hotel and the customer service is second to non. The staff are very smiley and nothing is too much trouble. The food is awesome - try the crab, and the breakfasts scrumptious. They deserve their award. We hope to...
